Zodiac Killer's Cypher Finally Solved
« on: December 12, 2020, 05:51:55 AM »
A few cypher experts and coding expertise solved the 51 year old enigma that stymied code breaking pros from around the globe, but it took them 14 years.



I HOPE YOU ARE HAVING LOTS OF FUN IN TRYING TO CATCH ME
THAT WASNT ME ON THE TV SHOW
WHICH BRINGS UP A POINT ABOUT ME
I AM NOT AFRAID OF THE GAS CHAMBER
BECAUSE IT WILL SEND ME TO PARADICE ALL THE SOONER
BECAUSE I NOW HAVE ENOUGH SLAVES TO WORK FOR ME
WHERE EVERYONE ELSE HAS NOTHING WHEN THEY REACH PARADICE
SO THEY ARE AFRAID OF DEATH
I AM NOT AFRAID BECAUSE I KNOW THAT MY NEW LIFE IS
LIFE WILL BE AN EASY ONE IN PARADICE DEATH

The first cypher from the Killer was solved by a couple a husband and wife team that taught in high school.

The Zodiac has never been caught.

Thought the backwards K meant something else.
There are people I would take a bullet for and others that I would like to put a bullet in.

I hope the decades of trying to solve this was a hobby and not a profession.  Lots of money and time wasted for nothing otherwise.

The FBI and CIA gave up solving it 20 years.   The guys that solved it did so for the challenge. - one had worked on it for14 years

For years they said this one would have his name in it.... Um no name?
